I did not know that could even be done. It doesn’t sound like justice.

There are some cases where a statute of limitations can be "tolled" -- or extended. Just a few that I can think of:
1. The defendant is out of the country for an extended period of time.
2. The defendant engages in fraudulent conduct to hide evidence that should have been made available before the statute of limitations expired.
3. There was a delay in the discovery of the actual injury or harm that led to the criminal charge due to circumstances outside the prosecution's control.
